After much persuasion, I finally bought some boots. In the past I've always favoured minimalist trail running shoes whenever I've been out in the hills. They get wet, but dry quickly, give lots of flexibility and are quite a bit cheaper.
That said, at half price, these boots were worth trying. The waterproofing is good - no problems yet. Grip is great, and, best of all, they're not as heavy as I was worrying. I'm still not a great fan of the stiffness, but I think that applies to all boots, and is more a matter of personal preference.
- Good grip
- Too stiff
- Recommended use
- Winter hiking
